Millennials On The Move, But To Where?, Zach Kisor, Shelby Hoge, Ashley Cosher, Bethany Gump, Derek Carson, Kristi Mitchell 2017 University of Akron

Millennials On The Move, But To Where?, Zach Kisor, Shelby Hoge, Ashley Cosher, Bethany Gump, Derek Carson, Kristi Mitchell

Honors Research Projects

The following reports discuss the geographical preferences of Millennials in relation to job selection preferences. Our team analyzed the moving trends of Millennials in both Ohio and the United States to determine what factors influence this decision. Collectively, our team concluded that in order to successfully recruit Millennials, companies must offer benefit packages that center around work-life balance. This entails not just highlighting what a job requires technically, but opportunities for leadership development, social activities outside of work, and more. To recruit this upcoming talent, companies need a holistic approach that convinces Millennials that working for their company creates a ...


Monotone Strategyproofness, 2016 Selected Works

Monotone Strategyproofness

Hanna Halaburda

We propose a way to compare the extent of preference misrepresentation between two strategies. We define a mechanism to be monotone strategyproof when declaring a ``more truthful" preference ordering in the mechanism dominates--with respect to the true preferences--declaring a less truthful preference ordering. Our main result states that a mechanism is strategyproof if, and only if, it is monotone strategyproof. This result holds for any deterministic social choice function on any domain; for probabilistic social choice functions it holds under a mild assumption on the domain.

Q-Tam: A Quality Technology Acceptance Model For Technology Operations Managers, Kwabena G. Boakye, Thomas McGinnis, Victor R. Prybutok 2016 Georgia Southern University

Q-Tam: A Quality Technology Acceptance Model For Technology Operations Managers, Kwabena G. Boakye, Thomas Mcginnis, Victor R. Prybutok

Kwabena G. Boakye

This paper contributes to research on the quality factors that affect customer acceptance and intention to continue purchasing disposable technology. We have developed a model (Q-TAM) that integrates the Technology Acceptance Model and a quality framework. We conducted a survey of 322 smartphones users and analyzed the results using Partial Least Squares – Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) to determine how our integrated Q-TAM model affected consumers’ intention-to-continue-purchasing disposable technology. The PLS-SEM analysis of the Q-TAM model established that consumers assessed the product quality based on two distinct dimensions: attribute quality and reliability quality. Further, we found support for the positive and ...

Why Can't We Wait (To Spend) And The Law Of Unintended Consequences: Potential Negative Impact On Minority Employees From Well-Intentioned Organizational Compensation Practices, James R. Jones 2016 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Why Can't We Wait (To Spend) And The Law Of Unintended Consequences: Potential Negative Impact On Minority Employees From Well-Intentioned Organizational Compensation Practices, James R. Jones

James Jones

In this time of increasing uncertainty about business viability and stability, many organizations are looking to gain control of their "bottom line" by strengthening the link between organizational outcomes and employee rewards. Long gone are the days of steadily and automatically increasing worker salaries as a hoped-for method of expanding productivity. Indeed, there is a school of thought that suggests that automatic pay increases act as a "demotivator" for many individuals. The more common approach currently is to utilize incentives (i.e., additional compensation/rewards given for performance beyond normal expectations) as a way of enhancing employee work motivation, thereby ...


Utilization Of 340b Program In A Rural Hospital, Heath Ashford, Lauren Valli, William K. Willis, Alberto Coustasse 2016 Marshall University

Utilization Of 340b Program In A Rural Hospital, Heath Ashford, Lauren Valli, William K. Willis, Alberto Coustasse

Alberto Coustasse

Introduction: The 340B is a federal program that provides eligible rural hospitals, providers, and clinics the capability to purchase medications at reduced prices for outpatient use. Enrollment in the 340B program requires drug manufacturers to supply covered healthcare entities and eligible healthcare organizations medications at substantially reduced prices and has allowed covered entities to extend federal resources by offering more comprehensive services and reaching more of the vulnerable populations. The purpose of this research study was to examine utilization of 340B program within provider based clinics of a university medical school affiliated with a rural hospital to assess the benefits ...


Ownership, Activism And Engagement: Institutional Investors As Active Owners, Terry McNulty, Donald Nordberg 2016 University of Liverpool

Ownership, Activism And Engagement: Institutional Investors As Active Owners, Terry Mcnulty, Donald Nordberg

Donald Nordberg

Research Question: We research two questions: First, why do some institutional investors operate at a distance from organizations seemingly acting only to “exit” and “trade” shares while others actively engage through various means of “voice”? Second, what processes and behaviour are associated with active ownership?
Research Findings/Insights: We develop the concept of active ownership by drawing on contrasting theories and images of ownership, identifying antecedents of active ownership and distinguishing between alternative processes of active ownership.
Theoretical/Academic Implications: Alternative pathways to active ownership contrast the distant, sometimes adversarial nature of shareholder activism with an engaged, collaborative relationship between ...


How Variances In Business School Rankings Affect Enrollment Trends And Practices, Guillermo A. de Veyga 2016 Seton Hall University

How Variances In Business School Rankings Affect Enrollment Trends And Practices, Guillermo A. De Veyga

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

This study examined the effect that variances in the U.S News and World Report rankings have on enrollment trends and practices in both top and not top-25 business schools. The purpose of this study was to determine whether mobility in the rankings was met with a statistically significant response to the research questions presented. While this was not the first study to look at business school rankings and their effect on enrollment trends, it was the first one to look at recent data associated with this phenomena, as well as, the first study to utilize panel data in order ...

The Identification And Exploitation Of Terrorist Financing, Jacob S. Gordon 2016 Liberty University

The Identification And Exploitation Of Terrorist Financing, Jacob S. Gordon

Senior Honors Theses

Terrorism and the threat of terrorist attacks have forced the United States to place a high priority on developing a comprehensive counterterrorism strategy. A crucial component of this overarching strategy focuses on targeting the finances of a terrorist organization, hoping to eliminate or stifle their sources of funding in an effort to render the organization incapable of launching successful operations due to an absence of funding. By analyzing the most common financing options that terrorist groups use, the United States can hone its ability to disrupt the funding operations for terrorist groups. Likewise, developing a method for tracking the laundering ...


Measuring The Nearness Of Modern Near-Monies: Evidence From The Early 1980'S, Jean A. Gauger, John R. Schroeter 2016 Iowa State University

Measuring The Nearness Of Modern Near-Monies: Evidence From The Early 1980'S, Jean A. Gauger, John R. Schroeter

John Schroeter

Existing empirical studies of the degree of sustainability among various monetary assets generally ignore several financial instruments which only recently have become prominent. Here this deficiency is remedied by investigating substitution behavior within a portfolio of near-monies which includes money market funds and interest bearing check able deposits, as well as conventional savings and time deposits. The research uses a standard technique of empirical production studies that has recently been applied to the issue of monetary asset substitution by Sims, Takayama, and Chao (1987). The findings here provide evidence of significant sustainability between each of the "modem" near-monies examined and ...


Intellectual Property Rights And The Welfare Effects Of Agricultural R&D, GianCarlo Moschini, HARVEY E. LAPAN 2016 Iowa State

Intellectual Property Rights And The Welfare Effects Of Agricultural R&D, Giancarlo Moschini, Harvey E. Lapan

Giancarlo Moschini

The profound changes that have affected the agricultural sector of developed countries in modern times are perhaps best illustrated by the evolution of production techniques. Mechanization, new chemical inputs such as herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers, genetic selection of crops and animals, new crop varieties, and countless other technical and organizational improvements have allowed a generalized increase in physical output while, at the same time, agriculture suffered a massive exodus of labor forces towards the non-farm sectors. Indeed, one of the stylized facts of developed countries post-war growth is that productivity in agriculture has grown faster than that of other sectors ...


Dynamic Corn Supply Functions: A Model With Explicit Optimization, Abebayehu Tegene, Wallace E. Huffman, John A. Miranowski 2016 Iowa State University

Dynamic Corn Supply Functions: A Model With Explicit Optimization, Abebayehu Tegene, Wallace E. Huffman, John A. Miranowski

John Miranowski

Both static and dynamic models have been used to estimate aggregate supply elasticities for annual crops. The early studies relied on static single-equation models in a few variables, assumed static price expectations (e.g., Kohls and Paarlberg), and produced very small estimates of own-price supply elasticities (e.g., 0.07 for corn), Nerlove (1956, 1958a) and Nerlove and Addison showed that models of agricultural supply that incorporated adap tive price expectations and (or) dynamic resource adjustment produced larger estimates of supply elasticities for corn and other agricultural commodities. Additionally, they showed that supply elasticities obtained from static models need not ...


Agriculture And Water Quality Improvement, Lee A. Christensen, John A. Miranowski 2016 Iowa State University

Agriculture And Water Quality Improvement, Lee A. Christensen, John A. Miranowski

John Miranowski

The symposium "Agricultural and Water Quality Improvements; What are the Implementation Costs and Policy Issues?" was organized to establish what is known and to identify additional research needs. The major impetus for action on agricultural nonpoint source pollution problems comes from Section 208 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Amendments of 1972 and the Rural Clean Water Program. Public programs involving large expenditures from both public and private sources are being implemented and require economic research and analysis...

John Lawrence

The pork production sector is undergoing a significant, perhaps unprecedented change in its size and ownership structure. Further, the marketing linkages of pork producers,with meat packers are changing dramatically. These .changes can have profound effects on industry performance and the appropriate strategies for virtually all the players in or associated with the pork industry,, such as feed complies, breeding stock and animal health suppliers, producers,.processors, pork merchandisers, and other.


The Assignment Problem And The Speed Of Adjustment, Walter Enders, Harvey E. Lapan 2016 Iowa State University

The Assignment Problem And The Speed Of Adjustment, Walter Enders, Harvey E. Lapan

Harvey Lapan

Mundell [20] demonstrated that in order to achieve balance of payments equilibrium and full employment, monetary policy should be paired with external balance and fiscal policy with Internal balance. The fundamental problem posed by Mundell concerned the methods governmental authorities should utilize to insure that both internal and external balance would be achieved when the underlying structural parameters of the economy were unknown. Mundell argued that the assignment of monetary policy to external balance and fiscal policy to Internal balance followed from the Principle of Effective Market Classification [20, p.76j: "Policies should be paired with objectives on which they ...
